TechnoRetro Dads Season 7 Premiere: The Star Wars Read-Along (sort of)

by TechnoRetro Dads

As we draw nearer to Star Wars Celebration and the forty-second anniversary of the film that started the mania, shazbazzar and JediShua bring a special presentation of the Star Wars Read-Along.

Read-along books with tapes or records were part of growing up for shazbazzar and JediShua, but what if they could actually be part of the story instead of just imagining it while reading and listening?  You can find out in this special Star Wars Read-Along episode.

For nearly forty-two years, pop-culture has been populated with images, sounds, and hundreds of plastic characters.  Yet, there always seem to be new opportunities to explore the original Star Wars among fans of the franchise.  The seventh season of TechnoRetro Dads continues this tradition of exploration as shazbazzar and JediShua (and the talented voice of narrator Scott Ryfun) find themselves in this special version of the Star Wars Read-Along….

Star Wars Stuff to Enjoy:

  • Go-to Cereals of Childhood
  • Various Movies Resulting from Star Wars Aftershocks
  • Saturday Morning Cartoons for the Mos Eisley Cantina
  • Vinyl Scratchbacks of TechnoRetro Tunes
  • Plenty of Star Wars Celebration Toys in the Attic
  • Space Games in the TechnoRetro Arcade
  • Early April Star Wars Scrapbook Memories

No, the words to the book aren’t found here…

…but yes, we know that it’s April 1st.  After all, we released our first for-the-public episode on 1 April 2013, the last time Monday marked April Fool’s Day.  And while we didn’t really prank you, we hope you’ll find fun in our foolishness in this bonus-length episode of TechnoRetro Dads.  After all, if it hadn’t been for Star Wars, we might never have started this crazy show to start with.  It certainly wouldn’t normally be 77 minutes long!  So sit back and let yourself go as Scott Ryfun narrates the TechnoRetro Dads’ Star Wars Read-Along (when shazbazzar and JediShua went back in time far enough to actually see that galaxy far, far away).
